I had a tough time getting out the door. The reason? In a few words. . .the puppy! My hats off to all parents of newborns.
This was my inaugural ride with aero bars. I like them a lot. The Profile Designs T3 aluminum bars that Will Mayberry from Triathlon Lab recommended were perfect.
I was surprised at how easy it was to maintain the position. Considering the litany of back problems I have had over my lifetime due to scoliosis, I think I held up pretty well for my first ride like this.
I was racing the sun once again.
It took about only eight minutes for my legs to to warm up. I kept it light and with a fast turnover.The golf course lights showing bright.
It's hard to believe that I will be forty four in two days. I often think of the last twenty years of my life and feel a bit sad at the realization that I didn't really live. When I started racing, my entire life changed. It has been a heck of a journey and I'm only getting started.
Until tomorrow my friends.
